I am having a problem on my network...
When I set up the HomeGroup on my laptop, my desktop recognizes the laptop, but my laptop does not recognize the desktop -- even with both computers set to share all (Documents, Pictures, Printers, etc.).
The main thing I am trying to accomplish is to print from my laptop, through the desktop. The printer I am running is an HP Photosmart C4200 series. The desktop is a Gateway and the laptop is an HP. I am also running McAfee Internet Security Suite on both computers. I have already gone into both computers and marked them as "trusted" through McAfee and they show up through McAfee as being on the network.

Hello mfullererie & welcome to Seven Forums
Check the advanced sharing options in Network & Sharing Center, make sure the settings match.
Make sure the time is exactly the same on both machines. If there's even 1/2 second time difference between the two, it won't connect.
Also make sure that your Workgroup name is the same on both machines and passwords are setup on both accounts.
